Hi Ya... any drum fans out there... can you tell me if you know anything about the rhythm Lekule? where does it come from? why is it played? ... and do you know if theres any videos of it, dance or drumming! Thanks
Jessica (girlfriend) has shown some interest in playing a bit. I want to get her into the dunun, so I brought her over to the shed to teach her some basics before Michael and Nick were going to be coming. She is a fast learner and very capable.
Once everyone was there we mostly worked on Soli. Jess stuck to the Kenkeni and once I had worked out some Sangban variations that were plaguing me I moved over to the djembe and Nick worked on the same variations. On Djembe I worked on some solo phrases that I learned eons ago from Fred Simpson. I also ironed out some issues moving from the echauffment into the break with all duns playing echauf.
Hi, I am going to Gambia on the 7th December 2009, I am going on my own and staying at Kotu beach and want to get in as much drumming as I can am pretty new to Djembie but love it, so would be grateful for any info am on a bit of a tight budget Gwen
I love playing my djembe even if I don't really know what I'm doing. It's a great stress release and fun to play with others. I have used my drum in the classroom with secondary school students and they love it too!
